This session will demonstrate, from start-to-finish, the creation of an entire install profile, using Features, Profiler, and Drush Make. This will be a fast-paced live demonstration, interlaced with discussion on building distributions and sites with each component.
In this talk, we will:
Start from a completely blank slate of a new Drupal install
Build the site up using standard modules, such as CCK and Views.
Export it with features.
Create a Drupal distribution using the Profiler distribution tool.
Package the distribution with the Drush Make packager.
Along the way, we'll also discuss the more theoretical concepts behind each portion. This will be a PHP-free session, but Drupal-knowledge is required
